I was wondering if someone could help me with a profile. A bit of history, I used to use MeGUI to do my encoding until I got fed up of its inconsistency as far as lip sync issued were concerned, so I looked around for a more reliable encoder and found Vidcoder which has never failed me. I have already made a HQ profile for movies and DVD’s I have on my HDD based on the settings contained in a previous thread here but my problem is that I have still some older TV stuff on that I want to convert for storage and viewing on my TV from a HDD through my Blu-ray player. The normal setting doesn’t really do it very well – it is blocky where a similar colour or shade covers a large area and also a little fizzy, as most of my stuff fis sci-fi there is a mlot of this…. What I really need is a profile that is better than the normal (maybe on par with MeGUI Spline setting or better) but obviously not as high as the HQ setting here. I want to make them as MVK with AC3 Passthru and chapter markers, constant bitrate and 400MB is size but they are all the parameters I know about. I would obviously not mind waiting longer for the conversions than the really quick time taken on ‘Normal’. I could do them in the HQ profile but they take ages for little gain considering the source. Can anyone please advise settings for a ‘medium or medium-high’ profile for this sort of content?
